terms of the noise at the governmental court in kiev but it's still far from settled only a few meters are separating the police lines and the line of the protesters or the rioters and still sometimes exchanging project hours at each other over the night we saw an attempt by the police to push the protesters off this particular place here the failed attempt when the protesters started charging with a writer started charging at the police the police had to withdraw and ever since then it's been like that the standoff continues over here it looks like yet another barricade with what remains of the police cars which were burned here on sunday night basically separating the line of the rioters and the police from time to time the protesters and the police are exchanging projectiles these rocks over here still being used to be thrown at the police during the night we also saw something very completely peculiar for ukraine in cases of vigilantism when the protesters organized something of a safari hunt on what they describe as pro-government provocateurs the court

9:04 am
ask yourself would do any western government confronted with the exact same problem or even something a lot milder how would they respond i think that the default response from the west is that the ukrainian government can do no right so whatever they do they're going to be condemned for it so they may as well i figure and i'm guessing that from their behavior they're figuring it as well they may as well do everything they can in their power to secure the rule of law to suppress the violent protesters and to make sure that this does not boiling over into civil war i think a modicum of force is appropriate when you're facing violent protesters you have to send a message that this will not be tolerated you have to send a message if you stand for them in the law breakers will not be allowed to run rampant and i think from what i've seen they've acted with you are able restraint especially again compared to what western law enforcement would routinely do in such circumstances. the riots in kio have highlighted a rise in nationalist movements and extremism and most of russia's political
9:05 am
analyst dmitri babich believes opposition leaders are trying to cover up their radical side that's a new political and other so-called moderate nationalist leaders although they're not moderate by european standards first they fail to sort of condemn these actions of no not just be fair to separate themselves from the neo nazis. at some time but i think you can deny that no marches were involved he said these were all for the girls for going to court which you know which was a voice of light which you know that this is serious i mean how can you afford to burn people and process and for all we know the whole feels like it's going to lead to these people rescued from the very beginning and it's a shame for the western press more than all just don't know how not to have noticed them think twelve and four and five and two futile reasons why it should be the western public of all to see what's inside and the body nice ukrainian people there

wednesday. the international peace conference on syria taking place here in this small swiss town of montreal on the shores of lake geneva is truly an international achievement it took so much time and so much effort but it's finally going to happen the syrian authorities and the rebels after years of fighting and unimaginable violence by going to finally sit down and negotiate but if the assad government did confirm that it was going to take part in the coppers a long time ago the same can be said about the opposition they've been constantly changing their mind even in the last twenty four hours and mainly because of iran a key regional player which was also supposed to take port moscow and washington which had been pretty much organizing this conference had been saying that its success why we depends on the patience of anyone with an influence on the situation there in syria and iran is definitely one of these powers. you remember how the opposition reacted to the u.n. envoy to. revoke the awful way returning the tickets in six hours time
9:08 am
all in all this is an ugly situation. that iran not taking part in the conference is not a catastrophe but it will definitely not help unite the muslim community in the fight against terror which is also going to be one of the key issues on the table here in montreal since besides the political opposition it is widely known that terrorists including al qaeda linked groups are fighting there in syria as well so as the chief diplomat continue to gather here in montreaux of course we'll be covering the whole conference and we'll be bringing you the latest details as it happens and jonathan steele who is a columnist on international affairs of britain's guardian newspaper believes the geneva talks such as the first step of the. prior says that's must involve iran. all the countries that are involved closely in the syrian situation. are providing arms or giving support to one of the political sides need to be there if that's
9:09 am
going to be a gradual demilitarization you position of local ceasefires from some genuine political talks to compromise all the surrounding countries need to be very and it's absurd to cut one of them everybody saying that this should be a process this is just the first step in a person. one hopes that they will agree to meet again and certain date fairly soon and that in the meantime iran will be brought back into the discussion because you know if you're trying to deal with a war obviously people are very ferociously opposed to each other but you've got to get them talking just to say well somebody is on one side and therefore can't take it makes no sense a tool in terms of international diplomacy in peacekeeping. the threat of terrorism in syria especially those posed by al qaeda to be the main focus of talks in geneva john is groups operating in the country outside getting the government and their fellow rebels fierce clashes have left more than

a thousand opposition fighters dead since the start all they care and as all she's marine upward now reports now some billy washington's previous indiscriminate support for the rebels is partly responsible here. when the enemy of your enemy is your enemy things can get complicated it's a conundrum the u.s. faces in syria where political financial and military support to the rebels has subsequently served to create a new hotbed for al-qaeda if with far less did not. stay in power or if he's weakened then syria could become that base another base like pakistan and that in afghanistan before it. uses a springboard to go into these other countries oh experts say an influx of extremist groups has turned the war torn country into a terrorist training center posing a greater threat to american interests than the leader washington wants removed
9:11 am
these groups are much more dangerous than we have tens of thousands of international fighters coming in in a very fundamentalist a possible we've almost come full circle after afghanistan on nine eleven where where we are seeing these groups still fighting for fundamental. principles what began as an anti-government uprising three years ago has turned into an internal fight between opposition blocs the free syrian army set up to battle assad has more and more found that its hands are full just defending themselves against you potus who are seeking a foothold in the country this leaving us officials acknowledging a loss of control over the war it initially supported. we. are deeply concerned about the rise of extremism. the world needs no reminder that syria has become the magnet for jihadists and extremists it is the strongest magnet for

terror of anyplace today and as world powers start gathering in geneva to map out a peace plan for syria they are being announced to the plug on terrorism. which should produce clear results with regard to the fights against terrorism in syria in particular it needs to put pressure on countries that are exporting terrorism by sending terrorists money and weapons to terrorist organizations especially saudi arabia turkey and of course the western countries that. was organizations no one ever imagined america would in any way support merino port r.t. new york. meanwhile violence caused by a terror group says syria is a player across the border they all kind of affiliated japan own this for a very last claimed responsibility of one massive explosion in a show dominated district of lebanon's compas so that's code at least for people.

but even countries a long way from syria's borders could be wrong or a blow to the threat from terrorism reports have emerged that al qaida is training europe into harvest in syria specifically to set up terrorist cells back home and maria for notional reports now from damascus. despite the international community separate now for its efforts to bring peace to syria and its people the brutal conflict now has a new face radical militants have long used children in their fight against a mask but now more and more women in both local and from the west have been dragged into jihad some apparently make the journey to marry fall into is who they appear ready to support no matter what's in the u.k. a blog even helps those who want to marry militant travel to the country here in syria training camps have been set up by al qaida in areas held by and to

government forces or aspiring female extremists is the most severe thing to see women join them and then encourage some to swap a traditional way of life for weapons and suicide belts traction it's clear women draw less attention from the police and security forces western officials are concerned about the rising number of their nationals looking to syria to take part in the war they're afraid that after being trained to kill these men and women will return to their home towns. by one level defect it is sad that is that is precisely what's meant to groups are hoping to achieve because in two different sources there are up to two thousand european fighters here in syria who joined rebels groups many of which have ties to al qaida for the time being they remain here in syria learning how to make and determine a goal and how to use a kalashnikov all the time waiting for the moment when their fatso norwich could be
